that the ninth circuit court of appeals agreed and the lower court in san fr francisco -- >> well, that is an interesting point. if it were in the constitution, there wouldn't be any need for a constitutional amendment. >> this is totally misreading the history. the reason you need constitutional amendments is exactly because of what's happening at the supreme court. this is not a decision the court should be making. the people of the state ofc california have a right to have their voices heard. and the reason that constitutional amendments on the state level were passed was because activist judges at the state level beginning in massachusetts were imposing their will on the voters and basically saying we don't care what you think. this is coming whether you like it or not and we're going to force it on you. the people have a right for their voice to be heard. this is an issue in which good people can have disagreements, but the reality is that it is not -- that the majority of americans who have voted to protect traditional marriage, you can't just say those people are discrimina
